Phantom of the Universe: The Hunt for Dark Matter

Phantom of the Universe: The Hunt for Dark Matter" gives planetarium visitors an overview of this proposed part of our universe that we have yet to physically document. Dark matter is believed to make up 27% of the universe, so what is this material and why can't we find it? The film begins by explaining the theory of dark matter, and the indirect evidence astronomers like Vera Rubin have collected that suggests that it exists.
